Agriculture in Cuba #SaturdaySnapshot #WeekendCooking — 14 Comments

  1. You are really educating your readers about Cuba. When I have time, I’ll be reading your other posts. Thanks!

    best… mae at

  2. What gorgeous photos! And I had no idea that Cuba was still plowing with oxen. Buuuuut, yes, jumping on the organic bandwagon seems like a great idea.

  3. I am learning so much about Cuba from your posts. Primarily, it’s sad – the conditions of the land. But, I’m glad you shared that bit of hope they have with the organic farms. Overall, I’m impressed with the beauty of the island.

  4. I’ve read a few books about modern life in Cuba but they all focused on life in the city for young people. I know nothing about the problems of agriculture there. The organic farming sounds like a smart potential solution for the country and the industry itself. It’ll be interesting to see where that goes. I didn’t know about marabou. I guess in terms of invasiseness it’s similar to the kudzu we deal with in the South?

  5. The countryside looks beautiful. Do you have any recommendations for accomodation (in any of the towns or cities)?
    We’ve booked our flights but are still trying to work if we should do a tour then do some self-guided stuff or do all self-guided trips.

    • We did a tour so everything was arranged. Our Havana hotel was Hotel Capri — decent rooms, interesting mid-century architecture. Our casa particular in Trinidad was owned by the artist Yami Martinez, but I don’t know the name of it.

  6. Another interesting post and the photos are so beautiful. Here’s hoping they can work the organic food production angle and use that to grow. Thanks for sharing. 😉

  7. I love traveling with you! Wow, what great shots. I love the tobacco barns but the scenery….Cuba is indeed a gorgeous place. One day my hubby and I will have to visit there. Thanks for sharing your trip.
